When Lady Meleri Weatherby witnesses her fiance's cruel treatment, she knows she must somehow put an end to their betrothal before he sets a date. But a confrontation compels her to make a rash vow to marry the first man she comes across. It is fortuitous then that she literally runs into Robert Douglas. His impoverished family desperately needs funding and he needs to find a wealthy English bride before the king takes the option to choose away from him. Both Robert and Meleri know that an alliance between the two of them can be of immense benefit but neither can anticipate their growing love for each other.
Despite a surprisingly slow start, Elaine Coffman has written a beautiful love story steeped in the richness of the history of the Douglas clan. Meleri has an odd, supernatural connection to the Douglases due to a visiting ghost whom she has seen in her dreams prior to her alliance with Robert. Life with the Douglases proves to be advantageous to Meleri who begins the story as a spirited heroine but eventually becomes a purposeful one. Robert, who is moody and melancholy, overcomes his initial dislike for his English bride and is so moved by her devotion to his family that he finds himself unable to use her as a tool of vengeance for his twin sister's death years ago. "The Bride of Black Douglas" is not just a love story it is a rich tapestry of history, pride, and family that will succeed in delighting readers
